Small Family Farms - The True Sanctuaries Of Life

A YouTube video of Sally Fallon Morell at the 2009 Farm Food Voices, the WAPF book review: "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" plus Sally's farm!

Return to your natural senses by recovering real-food culture for that is the foundation for nourishing real cultural wisdom. That is the future of humanity. Without a real-food culture there is no future.

Support small family farms as much as you possibly can now as they are the true sanctuaries of life. It simply is not possible for corporate owned factory farms to serve humanity the fruits of cultural wisdom as they do not grow those kind of "trees" nor do they sow those kind of seeds. Their only sense is in cents!

Small family farms embody our nourishing traditions. They preserve the awareness that real culture requires wise cultivation![1]

July 22, 2015 -

I became inspired to look into "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver" upon hearing that mentioned to me in a most recent conversation. My inspiration was to see whether the Weston A. Price Foundation(WAPF) had a book review on that. I'm delighted to have found that they do!

I just read in the review: "... family farms have been depopulated by bankruptcy and the inequities of a 'free market' economy every bit as efficiently as totalitarian countries forced the removal of village populations at gunpoint."

I wonder whether the American people (other than the families with former "family farms") can fully grok this statement.

The review continues: "These are compelling and involving topics, yet Kingsolver pushes deeper into our agricultural crisis to examine the broader cultural crisis looming large over our country."

This is the very first time I am reading anything about this book and at this point in the review I realize that I have total and complete affinity with the subject matter!

Continuing: "As a nation, we have walked away from the farm, she writes, and in so doing we have dangerously alienated ourselves from the normal processes of nature."

From this point on in the review it really starts "pushing deeper": "This means that we have just about an entire population utterly complacent—and by default passively complicit—in the face of the fact that just six companies—Monsanto, Syngenta, Dupont, Mitsui, Aventis and Dow—control 98 percent of the world’s seed sales."

I'm impressed to read that as: "... Former vegetarians, they are not squeamish about butchering roosters and turkeys when the time comes, but capably and humanely dispatch the animals they have carefully raised from poults."

I find this noteworthy and especially the reviewers commentary: "... the soft cheeses Barbara makes are all made from pasteurized, store-bought milk, and in fact, the 30-minute mozzarella recipe Camille provides at the end of the relevant chapter uses a microwave in the process. This development is rather startling to the reader who has grown to expect Kingsolver to always seek out the raw, unprocessed, genuine resources in her sustenance endeavors. Instead, Kingsolver devolves into a partly tongue-in-cheek discussion of the perversity of human beings who want to consume the milk of other species."

The reviewer gave this book a "Thumbs Up". The other option is "Thumbs Down". I intend to add my own third category that might require a graphic representation of the hand in additional positions between those of "thumbs up" and "thumbs down". On this book my hand position would be at least a forty-five degree turn away from the full thumbs up position.

The 23rd -

Just posted this comment (subject to moderation) at the WAPF site:

Thank You Katherine!

I'm glad that I found your book review as I first wondered whether the book was reviewed here upon hearing the book mentioned earlier today. I have blogged my comments at two blogs including:
(also at:

In thinking further on the extent of the family's transition at that time (half a decade or so ago and that you concisely stated as "So close, and yet so far!") as well as the state of awareness that appears to still predominate the American culture as a whole I do appreciate the shift that's presented here! I also have increased appreciation for the Weston A. Price Foundation and the mission here providing vital support to all people and especially the role that local chapters can fulfill in virtually every community (except when it apparently gets too rural).

December 31st -

Twenty-four hours ago I learned that Sally Fallon Morell's farm[2] is listed with the Raw Milk Institute.[3]

I asked her if she ships any of their products. and she replied: "We do ship whole wheels of cheese--you can see everything on our website."[4]
(Almost makes me wish that I lived there. ; ~ )

Just posted this comment at "Your Enchanted Gardener" Blog:

I like the idea to "Upgrade the Organic Garden at the White House to one with Biodynamic Soil".

Maybe Sally Fallon Morell would be willing to contribute some cow manure from her farm:

Ideally a Biodynamic apprentice could volunteer burying some cow horns (with the manure) right in the garden! This would be the perfect time to bury the horns and then dig them up in the Spring! That act alone could validate this election!

You have connections in the Biodynamic community. How about asking to be referred to BD people on the East Coast?
